Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Kind v. Hash

I'll put this in terms most layman will be able to grasp. Larry's point here is excellent and I agree completely. Some will say that one era is superior to another. I say no, my friends. The difference, as pointed out, is in the vibe. Now, you may prefer one era's vibe to another, but that is all personal preference. Afterall, it's still the Dead, no matter the year. I compare it to two other different senses-pleasing substances rather than wine (a subject I freely admit knowing very little about); a green sticky bud and a hunk of aromatic hash. Both got me happy (I am speaking in the past tense here), but just in slightly different ways. The 70's for me is the bud. Will lay you out and take your brain on wild trips into space, like rafting through the Grand Canyon. The 80's for me is the hash. The buzz a little more powerful and not so laid back, a slightly shorter trip like going over Niagra Falls in a barrel. Now this is not to say that either era doesn't have some of the other's feel to it, but as an overall generality, that's how it gets me.

Now, what the hell was I talking about?

u r right, but it doesnt sound logical, so ill elaborate

sticky, fat hash is supposed to be a product made out of the sticky bud, so it should only be normal that its stronger, more potent variation of the same thing

however, unenlightened suckers all around the world fuck with holly buds in different ways and almost always make mixtures with some kind of shit, in order to sell less essence for more $$$. hash is hardly ever pure nowdays

so im sticking to sticky buds too

anytime

I really wish I had more than just an academically vicarious inkling of whatever it is you so eloquently speak. To my eternal regret I always reacted badly to any contact with the cannibal’s raisins, with the inevitable deleterious effect on my would-be hippy credentials. I was left to find solace in caffeine, alcohol and the judicious application of the finest music this planet has yet had to offer. On the whole, I’m not doing too badly.

No worries. It has always been my opinion that the true Head while either sober or under the influence, can be brought to the heavens by a smokin' Scarlet/Fire. It has been many, many years since I partook and was joined by the boys, but my enjoyment now has just taken a slightly diffent tack; however the latter is in no way superior to the former. In fact, when really enjoying a particularly good show, I find myself being transported just as I was when altered, just now without the worry of The Man, losing my keys, finding some change for gas, whether or not I had actually promised a ride to the weird looking dude in a hockey mask, or how to get to my friend's sister's boyfriend's house for a bed. As mentioned above, when listening to a show now, 100% sober, I can still travel down the Grand Canyon or over the Falls.

Ah, what a nice, well aged thread to read after coming to the show (here) late...good job my friends. Really.

Now, as to what to call the early era: White Lightning. Made from grapes (originally) but lacking the hooty pooty component that all you wine connoisseurs provide above (and below). BTW, not an anti wine snob, just don't know enough to interact...

Captures the essence of the raw energy and power of the early days, without the refinement req'd to join your 70s era shows. Why, some won't even acknowledge that WL is a grape product, much less stock these shows near they beloved bottles on their shelves from the 70s and 80s...

Good call, Will!

The reason I was having troubles with your era was that i have troubles thinking of your era as a single era. Last night i was listening to the new CM transfer of 7/16/66 (WOW!!) and there is no way i can lump this in with something from 68 and for that matter it is hard to lump early 68 in with 69! And lets not get started on 71 comparisons. I just could not come up with a wine that would cover all this. I guess I should not have restricted my analogy so much.

Absolutely correct sir! In a way, think of 66 as the "white trash" missing the front tooth version of White Lightning, and 68 as the more uptown (??!!) version during prohibition, and then....well, you get the idea, it can work in different ways.

Hey?! The doc is IN on your thread...

I would love to, but I need them as part of my "What is the Half-Life of a Twinkie in a Microwave" thesis experiment.

Don't think I'm kidding.
